It’s a little later than planned, but we’ve now got the 8.0 VB language specification posted up for downloading. It covers all the new language features in VB 2005 and should be completely current with Beta2. Please let me know of any errors or corrections – it is a beta document, so it’s not going to be perfect.
In case anyone is wondering about 8.0 vs. 2005, the language itself is referred to by a version number, but the product has a year. So:
- VB 2002 product contains Visual Basic 7.0 language
- VB 2003 product contains Visual Basic 7.1 language
- VB 2005 product contains Visual Basic 8.0 language
